Does anyone know the best frame swap or something besides the s10 that would work?

I am doing the less that conventional right now.  I am putting a 53 Studebaker 2R truck on a 2002 C5 Corvette frame.  I picked up the frame cheap, had to do some straightening, but looks like it is going to work well.  The biggest change is shortening the wheelbase by 9".

I put a 57 Ford F100 on an Explorer frame not that long ago.  Was actually a fairly easy swap as the frame lined up well.  The biggest change was making the tunnel fit an AOD transmission.
